It is location dependent on which multiplexes you can receive, sometimes a predictor can give results that represent part of a locale and not a specific postcode.
London TV (LCN8) is carried on the Local Multiplex UHF C35 for the London area.

That's TV (UK) LCN91 is carried on the COM7 HD multiplex UHF C55. there could be several reasons that you aren't getting this.
You need a set with a T2/HD tuner - do you get BBC1,2, ITV, C4, C5 in HD on LCNs101-105 at all? If so you have a T2 tuner (but note, those stations are carried on the PSB3 multiplex).

COM7 C55 is transmitted at lower power than the other main multiplexes - it is only a temporary mux in any event and is due to close by the end of June 2022, there's been no announcement about what may happen to the channels on it.
If you have a very old aerial, it may be channel Group A, which will not pick up C55 unless you are very close to the transmitter. It's would not be worth spending any money changing/upgrading the aerial when COM7 is due to close in 3 months.

If you provide a full postcode, we should be able to advise about your reception predictions.
